Someone needs to learn the fine art of camouflage

Although there were 5 sparrows sitting on a wire watching over it, this is a cardinal fledgeling. Had the video continued to roll, you would have seen a beautiful bright red male fly over from the other side of the yard, swoop down toward this little guy and provide overhead cover as they both flew up and into the much denser tree behind this dappled willow.

(By the way, the strings and things you see on the deck glass are to help prevent fledgelings from flying into the glass.)
